    A reviewer

    I am a HUGE animal lover. Having two animals (a cat, from a store, and a dog, rescued from a kennel), I saw this book, and knew I had to read it. I am only starting it, and I KNOW I am going to love it. Read about some TRULY inspiring stories of Dog Adoption, and see how truly amazing the bond between animals and humans really is!

    highly recommended for dog lovers & rescuers everywhere

    This book is a bunch of short stories about dogs that were adopted through petfinder. Being that I found 1 of my 2 rescues through petfinder I may be partial to this book, but I really felt that it was a short easy read. A feel good book for everyone, and a reminder that sometimes you can find the best dogs at a shelter.
